Machine Gun Kelly "Binge" EP Album Sales fail to Capitalize on Eminem Beef
Not at the same rate.
Even with the highly publicized beef with Eminem, Machine Gun Kelly, in the Drunkenness of the EP apparently was not at all his wish list. According to HITS Daily Double, the project sold approximately 21,519 total album equivalent units in its first week, with 9,000 of those being pure album sales.
Albums like Mac Miller SWIMMING, Drake, the Scorpion, and — of course — Em Kamikaze all sold more units.
By comparison, Slim Shady's Kamikaze album sold around 433,000 total album equivalent units in its launch late last month and debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard 200.
MGK has been doing its best in the capitalization of his rupture with Em. On 3 September, published "the Rap of the Devil", as a response of the track in the Shadow of the jab to him in the Kamikaze cut "are Not the Same" and quickly began to flaunt Rap Devil gear.

The teasing continued throughout the month of September after Em fired back with "Killshot."
Since then, things have seemingly calmed down — for now.
